did of people going in, as you can see ron paul, mitt romney and rick santorum. they are the top three. but we want to caution everyone, this could change once we get more results. we're just getting an indication that these are the three that so far, at least in the entrance polls, are doing the best. the second tier, let's take a look at what we call the bottom four right now. we see newt gingrich, the governor rick perry, michele bachmann, jon huntsman. he's technically there even though he didn't campaign really in iowa. he's spending all of his time in new hampshire. presumably he'll come in last. he won't drop out because he's doing all of his campaigning in new hampshire. but remember, this is very early right now. it's sort of coincides, this top tier w the most recent polls we saw, not only our cnn/time poll, the "des moines register" poll, an nbc/marist poll. these are the three individual, the top tier. no matter how you look at these entrance polls, you can think of it as the most recent poll in iowa. because this is a poll really. and it's a little bit more accurate presum
. ron paul, can he stay in the top spot. does he sustain that through the night? governor romney and santorum, if he stays in the third spot, this can change, when he did hit the top, the des moines register indicates that he's the candidate surging. he came under attack in the last 48 hours. we just showed ron paul. we know he'll be in the top tier. this is 2008. he won one county, a tiny county down in southwest. so he's spreading the map tonight. let's come forward to 2012. you are going to watch. in just minutes when they start reporting from those caucus sites this map will start filling in. ron paul won just one county last time. what will we look for this time? number one, tea party strength. the darker the county, the higher percentage of republicans in this part of the state identify with the tea party. let's use blue for the contrast here. a lot of tea party voters, a lot of tea party voters. if ron paul is to be a serious contender, he'll fill in the map in places like this. his son rand paul was there to help him during this campaign. libertarians, young people, tea p
a long way to go. look at the colors and try to remember this for the night. the lighter pink is ron paul, purnell rick santorum, the dark red is mitt romney, the lighter red is newt gingrich, rick perry the orange, yellow michele bachmann, jon huntsman he didn't contest iowa. he said when the winner of iowa gets to new hampshire, nobody will care. we'll see how that plays out. but look at this when it starts to fill in. this is very early. this is likely to change. i want you to look especially here in the middle of the state. this up here is where you have -- i've circled des moines. the capital. look what you have, a little purple, a little red, a little orange. the reason that could be significant if it holds up, if you go back in time, this is huckabee country. they consolidated around one candidate and propelled mike huckabee to victory. in 2012 if you see a bit of hash in the middle of the map, that tells you that rick santorum will finish in the top three as our entrance poll suggests he will. let's see when they count the votes. but if this is a bunch of different colors in the m
reporting about ron paul. >> this the skeleton in ron paul's closet. this is from the ron paul newsletter. >> so you read them but you didn't do anything about it at the time. >> i never read this stuff. >> why did the press take so long to start examining the congressman's sometimes inflammatory record? i'm howard kurtz and we're kicking off the 2012 season onsome reliable sources." happy new year to all of you. it's obviously not a holiday for much of the political press gearing up for actual voting of 2012 after a year of prediction and prognostication. after treating ron paul as an entertaining side show they reacted to his rise in the polls the same way michele bachmann, rick perry, herman cain and newt gingrich shot up in surveys by belatedly examining his record including incendiary and racist news letters that were published under his name for years. >> there are racy and racist things. >> quote, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro communist philanderer. i voted against this outrage as a congressman. what an infamy ronald reagan approved it. we can thank him f
, with polls showing a three-way fight at the top, with mitt romney, ron paul and rick santorum. romney leads the pack with 24% support, among likely caucusgoers. that's an eight-point jump. ron paul, essentially tied for the lead. rick santorum, would remain below single-digits for most of the campaign season. now up at 15%. beating out newt gingrich, rick perry and michele bachmann. santorum is up nine points since the end of november. gingrich has dipped 13 percentage points in in a same period. the four-day poll results don't reflect how quickly momentum is shifting in this field. if the final two days of polling are considered separately, santorum beats out ron paul for second place. that points to a volatile feel on the ground here, with more than 40% of republican caucusgoers say they could still be persuaded to change their mind. as santorum becomes the latest conservative to rise in the polls, mitt romney, attempting to draw a clear contrast between himself and the former pennsylvania senator. >> senator santorum was kind enough to endorse me last time around. i appreciate that. and
caucuses are too early to call but based on early entrance polling, ron paul, mitt romney, and rick santorum are competing to win in iowa tonight. chris matthews is at the convention center in des moines, iowa and joins us now. how quickly do you expect the caucuses to move from this point? at this point too early to call but those three bunched at the top? >> i'm hearing it's going to take a while tonight, rachel. i think that's a statement in itself. too early to call can be misinterpreted to meaning it's going to be a close race. i'm taking it that way because romney is not racing above this pack or out in front of this pack. the fact that he's being challenged by someone so limited in their political appeal as rick santorum who was defeated in pennsylvania by 17% for re-election shall the fact that ron paul is able to challenge him in a serious race for president, with all his baggage, tells you that the republicans are not lining up behind mitt romney yet. now maybe late tonight i'll change that view but i've watched this thing and watched this polling now for weeks and what yo
. newt gingrich, john huntsman, ron paul, mitt romney, and rick santorum each making their final pitches. we will hear some of their latest ads in the attacks on them this morning as we hear about the latest news out of new hampshire. here's the story in the "wall street journal." mitt romney is republican rivals thought to weaken the central plank of his campaign. that is experienced as a corporate marauder who profited off the misery of others. it is an extraordinary debate over what is acceptable behavior. here is what mr. gingrich said on nbc's today show. looking at the front page of the "washington post," and image of derry, new hampshire were throngs of reporters and tv cameras were gathered with rick santorum. he defended his business career and need -- and there was a story about ron paul. saving paul. there was no fanfare and bodyguard. dr. paul, for the past three years, had come from believing and barack obama into believing that the country was riding toward total economic and social collapse. it talks about a 32-year-old at the event, giving the microphone to representative

. ron paul is now third, 22%, 11,238. newt gingrich, look at this, a distant fourth, only 6,788 votes, 13%. if we move to the bottom three, you see rick perry with just more than 5,000 votes, 10%. almost 3,000 votes for michele bachmann, 6%. 300 or so votes for jon huntsman. but rick santorum, all of a sudden, with almost half of the precincts reporting, slightly ahead. only 162 votes, only 162 votes ahead of mitt romney. it's still a three-man race. still 54% of the precincts remaining outstanding. jim acosta is over at rick santorum headquarters. let's talk to him a little bit. i guess the folks over there, they're pretty happy, at least, right now. a lot of them have come back from the caucuses, right, jim? >> reporter: that's right. they're very happy right now, wolf. they're starting to fill in behind me, and it's just sort of extraordinary to note what you were talking about just a few moments ago. the fact that rick santorum, somebody who has not really had much of a budget to work with. i mean, he's been on a shoestring budget, crisscrossing the state in a pickup truck, you kn
. >> what he says about his late surge in the polls and ron paul as commander in chief. meanwhile, ron paul is back on the campaign trail today with his son, the kentucky senator. after taking off to texas for the weekend. plus, michele bachmann calls herself america's iron lady. >> born and raised in iowa, only one candidate has been a consistent conservative fighter who fought obama care. fought increasing our debt ceiling even as other republicans were cutting deals with obama. >> and just now on the trail, newt gingrich got a jump on his concession speech. >> i don't think i'm going to win. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live from des moines, iowa with the daily fix today. i'm joined by the woman of the hour, ann seltzer with the best track record for predicting the unpredictable. and in washington, chris sa little za. ann, the most surprising thing about your results was santorum was in third place but in the last two days of your polling when you were in the field, the momentum was all in the direction of santorum actually being neck and neck with mitt romney. >> exactly. it's almos
of the "des moines register." the latest poll shows a surprise a three-way matchup. mitt romney, ron paul, rick santorum. rick santorum has been largely invisible in the polls about the campaign season and he is now beating the other evangelical choices and as a clear shot at victory tuesday night. mitt romney is in position to replicate what he has done in iowa and all three early states. in four days of polling, mitt romney lead at 24%. if the final two days of polling stand alone, the order reshuffles. rick santorum elbows out paul. let's go to the phones. the first call is from a sioux falls, s.d.. caller: good morning, c-span. host: what are your thoughts before the caucuses? caller: i am a democrat, of course. i would never vote for a republican, but i am impressed with santorum for what he stands for. he seems to be what the republicans are looking for. the rest of the crew, i do not know. romney is a flip-flopper. everyone knows ron paul would never be elected president. i kind of like him, but he will never be elected president. i think the republicans know that. host: let's go i
. >> ron paul gets a boost from an unlikely battlefield conversion, michele bachmann's iowa campaign chair. >> ron paul is in the top tier and i am here to help him. >> a new year comes with a season of primaries. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- thanks for joining us. i am mark shields. gordon peterson will be back next week. things have changed since last we were together. newt gingrich's slide in the polls was not helped by his campaign's day year to qualify for the virginia republican primary. -- failure to qualify for the virginia republican primary. >> it was a mistake. week hired a guy who turned in 11,100 -- [unintelligible] >> he compared that to pearl harbor? i think it is more like lucille ball at the chocolate factory. [laughter] you have got to get it organized. >> gingrich's problems provided an opening for other campaigns, especially that of ron paul and mitt romney, who are vying for iowa, followed closely by rick santorum, who jumped into double digits. jeanne cummings, what wound it, self-inflicted or otherwise, most led to newt gingrich's
and entrance polls the three candidates who are in contention to win tonight in iowa are mitt romney, ron paul, and rick santorum. as you can see there just 4% in. this decision by nbc news to call this too close to call is based on both what we have in terms of early results and also our entrance polling. we'll check in now with our nbc news political director chuck todd about what we know about why this race is so close right now. chuck? >> well, as you know, our boiler room down at 30 rock does a lot of different modeling and based only on precinct modeling. if you just get rid of the entrance polls. on the data that has come in, 0.3 of 1%. okay? separates first and third. and based on different models depending on what happens, any of the three appears it can win. we can also report that the entrance poll did overstate ron paul not by some significant of a margin and that is why you've seen some reporting people following on twitter feeds about where paul was and this or that. as we're seeing the actual data come in it's showing that romney and santorum were under represented in the entran
was there wasn't a ton of people on the ground. rick santorum was on the ground and ron paul was. but that's about it. a lot of this campaign was being run in this new vane, which was the fox news primary. there was a lot of conventional wisdom, but not wrong that this had fundamental changed the way that campaigns were run, particularly on the right, that the monopoly fox news particularly holds over the republic -- you know, the median republican primary voter is so profound and so total, that's what counts. how much you're on fox, how much exposure you're getting and not all of the door knocking and all of the things that made barack a winner. melissa, do you think that ends up being the case or not the case? and given the fact that two of the top three people, ron paul and rick santorum are the one who is impressed the most in iowa. >> well, absolutely. look, part of what is so fascinating about iowa every time is that it's a different kind of election. because they're caucuses, because they're neighbors standing there making it to each other, it always bring that is retail politics in
% of the precincts reporting. ron paul up above 20%, taking about 23% of the vote here. jon huntsman who had spent all his time and money in new hampshire finished third at about 17%. he hoped for a second place finish here, did not get it. gingrich and santorum going back and forth all night for fourth and fifth place. we'll dig into some of the numbers with mark halperin, john heilemann and we'll see where this race heads next as we go down to south carolina, that just in a minute. let's take a listen to what you think about all this. shoot me an e-mail at waytooearly@msnbc.com. or text the word awake followed by your response. 622639. we'll read the best responses later in the show. we also take you to a polling place in new hampshire where we ask voters who they voted for and why. a group that seems fixated on defeating president obama. >>> live at 5:30 a.m. here in manchester, new hampshire we get to the news. after last night's vote it would take something catastrophic now to prevent mitt romney from becoming the republican nominee for president. he rolls down to south carolina this morning,
guys hurting our people. the problem with ron paul is ilationist foreign policy. it is our business why should we spend our mon competent live to get involved in another war. >> will that lead to less violence or more? america and war. that's our show tonight. and now john stossle. ♪ what is war good for? for protecting us from people who want to kill us. kill them before they kill us. what if america hadn't gone to war against the nazies in world war ii? we talk about government exceeding the constitutional limits and defense is something that government is supposed to do right here in the constitution. government is doing all kinds of things it shouldn't be doing and defense is not one of those things. still ron paul argues that our government went way beyond defense and attempts at build acts of violence that create new evidence and for saying that ron paul is vilified by other republicans. rick santorum said what people don't like about ron paul is the craziness was cutting our military in half and pulling our troops in from all over the world. newt gingrich said he is wrong on na
and one person said ron paul and i'll get to that. that's really important. here's another thing. in a head-to-head matchup the strike team matchup said they would support rick santorum over obama, that's right. this is important because a lot of pundits and washington insiders maybe surprised to hear what they consider long shot contenders, santorum and paul. not being dismissed by mainstream and major entrepreneurs, business leaders and ceos and donors in this country. but in fact, one of the most influential of them all, a man who manages the largest bond fund in the world, says the man with the best economic vision for america is ron paul. bill gross is the founder and co-chief investment officer of p m mco. ron paul is coming off a third place finish, very strong in iowa, and before i ask you why you like ron paul, let me just one through a couple of things here that people may know him for. wants to cut $1 trillion from the budget in the first year, wants to get rid of the federal reserve. what do you think about those policies? >> well, i responded to you and said that ron
characterizing you the caucuses as too close to call tonight. mitt romney, rick santorum, ron paul, all at 23%. let's check in with our nbc news political director chuck todd, who is keeping an eye on the numbers for us tonight. >> not only are we characterizing the race as too close to call but we may not call the race at this point, assuming everything is what it seems to be and how the vote count is being reported in, that we will never be able to call the race before every vote is counted. that's how close it is between first and third. we are seeing in the raw vote, we do know there was a little bit of a slowdown in the vote count by the state party. remember, the state party doing these vote counts it is important to note, nbc news may not ever be able to project this race based on molding, we will actually is to do it the old-fashioned way, wait for every vote to be counted. i know a lot of people have questions about the raw turnout. right now, and again, this is based on some numbers, but looks like it is about on par with four years ago. four years ago, about 120,000 republicans cam
support romney. 12 of 15. two preferred gingrich over all other candidates and one person said ron paul and i'll get to that. that's really important. here's another thing. in a head-to-head matchup the strike team matchup said they would support rick santorum over obama, that's right. this is important because a lot of pundits and washington insiders maybe surprised to hear what they consider long shot contenders, santorum and paul. not being dismissed by mainstream and major entrepreneurs, business leaders and ceos and donors in this country. but in fact, one of the most influential of them all, a man who manages the largest bond fund in the world, says the man with the best economic vision for america is ron paul. bill gross is the founder and co-chief investment officer of p mco. ron paul is coming off a third place finish, very strong in iowa, and before i ask you why you like ron paul, let me just one through a couple of things here that people may know him for. wants to cut $1 trillion from the budget in the first year, wants to get rid of the federal reserve. what do you think a
on ron paul instead. >> like the president said when he was campaigning, i predict that if president obama has four years where he's not looking for re-election, his foreign policy will not be any different than ron paul's foreign policy. >> reporter: the texas congressman's response? my crowds are bigger than yours. >> why are the crowds getting bigger and bigger? why is it 77 million people want us to get out of afghanistan? i would say i'm pretty mainstream. >> reporter: don't count out rick perry and michele bachmann. in the 2012 field of drama in iowa. gingrich says no matter what happens here in iowa, he is headed straight to new hampshire after the caucuses to rip into mitt romney. and it appears the former speaker's supporters like what they're hearing. as he was in this room taking romney apart today, there were supporters in the adjacent room cheering him on, wolf. >> when i was in iowa last week, you turn on the tv, you see the attack ads on newt gingrich. here's the question. what took him so long to respond? what was he thinking? >> reporter: that's exactly right. what w
's conservative. >> greta: you said today if ron paul becomes president we'll be living in the 1930s again, he'll bring the troops home and bring the fifth fleet back from the persian gulf. congressman michele bachmann said it would be dangerous if he became president. you are all closing in on him. if he -- the other thought, too, if you make him mad enough and he runs to the third party he will guarantee your ultimate opponent president obama is re-elected. your thoughts on congressman ron paul. >> i do disagree with him on the policies relative to his foreign policy statement. the idea that you say is it none of our business if iran has a nuclear weapon? they say they will wipe israel off the map and americans are next. that is not what we're interested in. if ron paul wants to run as a third party, that is his call. but americans need to have a president that is going to be strong from the stand point of getting our economy back in place. so that we can have the research and development to keep up with the countries like china. and make sure that iran and countries that are run by absolute
it was the ground game plus the fact that everybody else around him imploeded. i think, on the other hand, ron paul's supporters, i think they are deeply, deeply committed. i mean, i think they are people who are not going to, once ron paul is out of the race, are not going to easily jump into another one of those candidates. i think they may sit out. i think they may be disgusted by it. i think the real question is the people who are supporting ron paul, why are they doing it? i think that's really the question because i think a lot of it -- i think -- >> why does anyone support anyone? >> well, i mean, what aspect of ron paul is drawing his support? i actually think it has less to do with his small government proposals because we would see more of those people sort of say oh, my second choice is someone else at least talks that game. i think a lot of people are drawn to him because of his antiempire talk, because of him saying let's end these wars talk. and i also think civil liberties. >> it's not the marijuana? >> no, i think marijuana is also an issue, too. but i think they are the issues that

romney, ron paul and rick perry. >> what about them? >> they'll be here live! >> dana perino will be here and the actress who is now in a new show, how do you say her last name? prepon, kind of like the mustard. and larry sabano will wrap things up at the end of the show with his amazing analysis. nothing like hip-hop at 5:00 a.m., huh? >> it's on my ipod. let's talk about mitt romney and what he did last night. i think he met and exceeded expectations despite what you might be reading from debbie wasserman schultz from the dnc, he got 39% of the vote and many people said look, he needs 37% plus to say this is a successful night. he's been campaigning there and they know him there and they showed it. the economy being the number one issue. he's tops. >> and you have -- we'll go through it. mitt romney with 39%. a bunch of democrats said he's 25. now he's there. newt and rick, look at that. way, way back there at 9% and rick perry who didn't do much in the state at all. in fact, spent this past week in south carolina got 1%, smoking buddy romer. >> will you slow down those fu
exchanges was ron paul and rick santorum. here is ron paul pointing out rick santorum's spending record. >> what really counts is his record. he's a big government and big spending individual, because he preached the fact that he wanted to balance the budget but raised the debt to five times. he voted along with no child left behind to double the size of the department of education, and he also voted to -- for a prescription drug program. he's a big government person. >> ron, i am a conservative and not a libertarian. i believe in some government. i do believe that government, that as a senator from pennsylvania, i had a responsibility to go out there and represent the interest of my state and that's what i did to make sure that pennsylvania was able to get its fair share of money back. >> one of the things we talked about on tuesday night. we were doing a special version of "up" after the results came in from iowa, and as we saw one of the things interesting is santorum's record is the opposite of ron paul in a certain kind of axis, and that's he is associated with the tea party center
